Making Room for Possibilities

Got More Stuff?

So it’s getting to be that time of year when

you start thinking about what to do with all

of the “stuff” you got for the holidays…you

know what I”m talking about!

You either found stuff, bought stuff, received

stuff as gifts, or got stuff on sale, but you’ve

probably got more stuff!

George Carlin might ask, “Where are you

going to put all of that stuff?!”

Too Much Stuff

Trying to stuff more stuff into a place with

already too much stuff doesn’t work too well.

Some of you are going to have throw out or

give away some of your old stuff to make room

for some of the new stuff that you got.

It Doesn’t Work

It doesn’t work to try to think positively

if your mind is full of negativity.  It’s no

different than cramming an overflowing

closet with a nice, new coat you bought.

It won’t work. There’s no room.

And you’ll just ruin the new coat.

Making Room

The exercise for Week Two of A Year to Change

is all about creating mental room for a new way

of thinking about yourself.

You want to think more positively about

yourself?  How are you going to do that if

your mind is full of negative thoughts?

We’re going to have to make some room

for the new stuff.  The good stuff.

Create the Space

I hope you’ll take the time this week to do

this work, create the space for something

positive in your mind, and make room for

the possibility that you’re not all those awful

things you often tell yourself you are.

We will tackle what to do with all that “stuff”

from the holidays a little later on…


Interested in making one positive change a

week in 2014?  Come join me in working through

A Year to Change…we’ve just gotten started!

Just jump in and have some fun getting healthier

and happier this year!
